Battlefield 4 has had a rocky start..

bf4-reviews

Now, I knew that Battlefield 4 has had a rough start. It crashes a lot, it’s hard to find games, bugs in the game stop it being enjoyable but the latest Amazon sale tempted me for a few minutes until I scrolled down..

I’ll buy it in a year or two, perhaps. Anyone for a game of Bad Company 2?

Battlefield 3 stats for your own site?

Battlelog is very useful but sometimes you want to have stats for your own site.

With that in mind I’ve come across 2 APIs that can be used to talk to EA’s servers:

  • bf2s.com have an API for Battlefield 2 that is the same as the one for bfs3.com.
  • The bf3stats.com api is explained here and looks fairly easy to work with.
  • There’s also a WordPress plugin that uses the bf3stats.com api to power a widget.

I haven’t tried any of the above but I will be downloading the WordPress plugin, hopefully I can submit a few patches to the author if I can as we’ll need shortcode support if it’s to work on the B2C site.

BF3: Helicopters and AA on Noshahr Canals

Two very differing commentaries on Noshahr Canals (rush) in Battlefield 3. One gives tips on flying a helicopter, the other shows how overpowered a good driver on the AA gun on that level is!

Meanwhile I started playing the game on Xbox 360 last night and it was the exact same as on PS3. Until you unlock some of the better weapons it’s really tough. It didn’t help that I was dumped into losing teams, even getting spawn trapped on one map.

Battlefield 3 Weapon Damage

Den Kirson is at it again Amrosorma, CrustyM, erk070, and tomchuk of ESDECO produced a neat weapon damage spreadsheet for Battlefield 3 here.

I haven’t checked it out yet but as I’ve hardly unlocked anything it probably doesn’t really matter to me yet any way!

Some Battlefield 3 tips and myths here The…

Some Battlefield 3 tips and myths here. The first two I saw myself, the third from here and summarised by Gavin:

  • When you die bullets and rockets will still fly through the air. I disabled a tank after I died in one game.
  • The knifing animation can be interrupted if the attacker is killed. I was lying on the ground, then suddenly looking into this guy’s face and at the sky and gunfire shot him down and I escaped!
  • If you plant a mobile spawn point and die don’t come back as a recon as the spawn point will explode.

Lots of great discussion on the Battlelog forum.

BF3: It all started out so well..

Battlefield 3 was finally released in Ireland and the UK and elsewhere yesterday. I had a few games early in the evening and then later played with a few of the guys.

Yes, stats aren’t everything but looking at a killcam all the time isn’t fun either!
